AERIAL RACES SOUGHT
Aero Club of America Asked to
Delay Decision.
CLAIMS OF THIS CITY
Maj. Squier Directed to Examine
Possible Courses.
LAND NEAR BENNING VIEWED
Many Places Competing for the
Meet of the Foremost
Aviators Next Year.
The committee of the Aero Club which
will co-operate with the Chamber of Com
^ merce in bringing the aerial races to
' Washington if possible next year, met in
the office of Charles J. Bell this forenoon.
There were present Charles J. Bell, Dr.
Albert Zahm, John Barrett, director of
the bureau of American republics, and
Prof. Willis Moore, chief of the weather
bureau.
The committee appointed as a subcom
mittee Maj. George O. Squier of the
signal service, who will ^examine the sites
around Wasnington, where the aerial car
nival might be held and report at the next
meeting of the committee. This meeting
will be held in conjunction with a similar
committee of the Chamber of Commerce
next Tuesday at 11:30 in Mr. Bell's office.
He is a vice president of the Chamber of
Commerce, as "well as a member of the
board of directors of the Aero Club, and
thus will in a measure represent both
bodies.
Message to Aero Club.
One thing that was done by the meet
ing was to send a telegram to the Aero
Club of America in New York saying
that Washington intended to make a bid
for the aviation carnival next year, and
asking that any decision as to the place
of holding the meet be delayed until
Washington could be heard from.
There is already a great deal of com
petition for the meet among the cities.
Xew York. Chicago, St. Louis, Indianap
olis and Cincinnati are already in the
field and they are all prepared to offer
big guarantees for the prizes and other
expenses. There probably will be noth
ing definite decided until after the prin
cipal officers of the Aero Club of Ameri
ca are all reassembled in New } ork, but
the people in Washington who want the
meet here, are trying to be prepared for
quick action when the time comes.
Inspecting Ground Near Benning.
Of course the first essential for the
aviation meeting In Washington is a
proper course. It looks to the outsider
as though almost any location ought to
do for a sky race, as all roads look alike
in the air. but aviation is not yet near
enough to an exact science for the pilots
<f heavier-than-air machines to alto
gether disregard the ground, and they
wish a tolerably level stretch of coun
trv to fly over.
Dr. A. P. Zahm of the Washington
Aero Club yesterday went over part of
the ground around Benning and promised
tnrjay that he would inspect the ground
north of the race track as far as College
l'ark. where the government will hold its
training flights. This locality promises
well so far as the ground for the course
is concerned In case this stretch were
selected the finish line would be inside the
race track grounds, and the course would
be north toward College Park. The track
has the advantage that there is not only
a good stretch for starting and landing,
but there is also abundant building room
for housing all the machines and men
l:kely to be present at the meet.
Potomac Park Courses.
The other two possible courses are
around the Potomac Park and from the
Potomac Park across the river into Vir
ginia. If the aviators do not mind cross
ing and recrossing the river there is no
reason why ahundant space could not be
HOW MAE EDNA WILDER
GOT RID OF A DOUBLE CHIN
Without Dieting, Internal Reme
dies, Face Straps or Physical
Culture?An Interesting
Story for Fleshy People.
"I removed my double chit and reduced thirty
pounds in less than s:x week*," says Mae Edna
Wilder, who stand* tire fe?t high, weighs 120
pounds and is a picture of perfect health. "I
<l'd this by a process which is m* own discov
ery a process of external application. I simply
apply the treatment to any part of the body
where superfluous flesh exists and it vanishes a?
if by magic. Five minutes every other day for
two weeks is all the time needed, and one's
most intimate friends need not know anything
about it. I am so grateful for my own relief
that 1 will give five advice to any one who
suffers as T did. I consider a double chin one
of the most unsightly physical defects, and su
l>erfluous t!<*sh is just extra weight that one
must carry with them everywhere and all the

fold more active since I lost mine." Any inter

had on a run directly across the river
from the Speedway and back.
The Potomac. Park itself happens to be
almost exactly ten kilometers around,
and there could be a kite-shaped track
laid out here th.it would not cross the
water at all except a very small stretch
of back water from the tidal basin that
would be almost a negligible quantity.
Both of these latter courses have the
advantage that they are almost in the
heart of the ctiy. and that is a decided
consideration with visitors. There would
have to be a large amount of money
guaranteed for prizes and other expenses
and the management would depend
largely on the gate receipts for reim
bursement. A course that was so easy
of access, besides being so picturesque,
would insure a big attendance at all
times. <
Unofficial inquiries have been made as
to the attitude of the government to
ward the erecting of stands and the
charging of admission to inclosures in
the park, and while this is a govern
ment reservation, it is thought there will
be no trouble on that score.
There have been expressions of opin
ion from many of the prominent busi
ness men of Washington on holding the
race here, and there is such a una
nimity of opinion that the views express
ed all read about alike. The meet will
be the derby of the air, and Washing
ton is the one city of the country
where such an event should be held,
when the majority of the visiting com
petitors will be foreigners.
Preparation, at College Park.
The work of preparing for the gov
ernment training flights at College Park
is progressing slowly. Lieut. Benjamin
D. Foulois, who, with Lieut. Lahm, was
to have been trained in handling the
Wright aeroplane, having been ordered
abroad, his place will be taken by
Lieut. Humphreys of the Engineer
Corps.
The bids for the aeroplane shed at
College Park are to be opened Tues
day, and the work will be completed
in ten days or more. After that Wil
bur Wright will be summoned to Wash
ington and the training will begin if
the weather and Mr. Wright agree. In
the meantime Wilbur Wright is in Day
ton sawing wood for aeroplanes, a num
ber of which have been ordered by
wealthy amateurs.

WORRIED BY ILL-HEALTH.
William Stockett Writes Message to
His Mother and Shoots Himself.
"I am sorry to have committed such an
act, but I was worried nearly to death.
Mother, please forgive me, for I was
tired."
After writing this message to his
mother last night William Stockett, col
ored, shot himself in the head. He was
standing in front \>f 700 4th street north
west.
Sergt. Curry and Policeman Mahaney
of the sixth precinct had noticed that the
conduct of the man was peculiar and
were not far away when Stockett fired.
The bullet entered just behind the left
ear and came out over the eye.
The two policemen rushed up and sum
moned the patrol wagon from the sixth
precinct station and Stockett was taken
to the Casualty Hospital, where he be
came unconscious. This morning it was
said he had small chance of recovery, it
is said that Stockett, who was a candy
maker, living at 740 Oth street, gave up
his employment yesterday because of
continued ill-health, and last night be
fore leaving home he showed signs of
despondency. His friends believe he shot
himself because he feared he would not i
get well.
BARGES ON THEIR WAY HERE.
They Will Load Coal at This City
for New England.
The tug Piedmont of the fleet of the
Consolidation Coal Company is on its
way down the coast from Boston with a
tow of light barges for this city and Bal
timore to load coal for New England
points. Barge No. 10 is to come here,
and it is thought that it will be at Point
Lookout, ready to be brought to this city,
tonight or tomorrow. As soon as the boat
reaches this city it will go under the coal
chutes at the Georgetown piers of the
Consolidation Coal Company and will take
aboard about 1,600 tons of the fuel. While
some little of the many thousand tons of
coal shipped from this city this season
to the towns on the coast of New Eng
land has been moved in coasting schoon
ers, by far the greater part of the fuel
has been carried from this city to Boston,
Portland and other points by the big
( barges of the coal company. Many more
tons remain to be shipped from this city
| before the season ends.

COMPARISON MADE OF COST
Horse-Drawn Apparatus and Motor
Contrasted ? Witnesses of
Demonstration All Pleased.
The adoption of motor fire apparatus
for the local department, to be pur
chased as new equipment is needed, is
favored by Commissioner West. He
believes that the other members of the
board of Commissioners will agree to
the adoption of this policy.
Economy in the operation of, the Are
department, Commissioner West is con
vinced, Is the chief argument for the
adoption of motor fire engines and hose
wagons in preference to horse-drawn
ones. He was convinced of their su

ness of two years, will be held Monday
morning at 11 o'clock, at the family home,
233 G street northwest. Rev. Dr. Walter
G. McNeil, pastor of the Wesley Chapel
Methodist Episcopal Church, will officiate.
The interment will be at Congressional

of the District jail. Dr. Ball was a
member of a distinguished family, and

had been practicing medicine in this city
for thirty years.
Dr. Ball leaves three sisters, Mrs. Mary
E. Huyatt. Miss Clark E.. Ball and Miss

SHOBT WEIGHT ICE SALES.
Charges Against Driven and Helper
'of American Wagon.
The arrest of Richard Hale and Ray
mond Suthard, driver and helper for the
American Ice Company, on a charge of
selling and delivering short-weight ice at
the Department of Agriculture yesterday,
was reported to the Commissioners yes
terday afternoon by the sealer of weights
and measures, W. C. Haskell.
The defendants were required to put up
$00 collateral each for their appearance in
the Police Court today.
Three bureaus of the Agriculture De
partment, Sealer Haskell reported, pur
chased 1,350 pounds of Ice. The amount
delivered to them was 253 pounds short,
he asserts.
Many peaches are now being shipped
from points along the Washington coun

I sional carload to the Pittsburg market.
The Engine.
his office enthusiastic in his praise of
motor fire-fighting apparatus.
Cost of the Engine.
The initial cost of the motor fire en
gine exhibited this morning and of a
horse-drawn engine of about the same
power is approximately the same. .$7,500.
In the case of the horse-drawn vehicles,
he points out, six horses must be pur
chased, three for the engine, two for the
hose wa.Ton and one to be held in reserve,
and these will cost $1,600. As the motor
tire engines are a combined engine and
hose wagon, each one replaces two of
the old-type vehicles. This $1,600 cost is
therefore saved. #To operate a horse
drawn engine, four men are required?a
driver and hostler, a fireman, an engineer
and an assistant engineer. In the case
of the motor fire engine one man per
forms all these functions, acting as chauf
feur when on the way to the fire and as
engineer when the engine and pump are
working at the fire. By the simple turn
ing of a small throttle the engine can be
turned from its use to move the machine
to use to drive the pump.
The cost of operating the motor en
gine, Commissioner West also pointed
out, is much less than for operating the
present form of steam engine. While
the engine is pumping water on a fire
for an hour it uses about five gallons
of gasoline, and that costs about 75
cents. To operate a steam horse-drawn
engine an hour at a fire a ton of coal is
used, and it costs the District $5.50.
Favorable to Adoption.
After considering these facts and wit
nessing the demonstration this morning,
Commissioner West declared that all the
arguments point to the adoption of motor
fire apparatus. The District appropri
ation act provides $5,500 for the pur
chase of a new fire engine, and Com

missioner West declared this morning
that he favored asking bids from all the
manufacturers of motor fire engines and
the purchase of that type If the cost
is within the appropriation.
Fire Chief Wagner, who also witnessed
the demonstration this morning, con
cluded that the speed of the motor ve
hicles made it possible for each such fire
engine to cover a much larger territory
than could be covered by a horse-drawn
vehicle, because the motor engine would
cover in Ave or six minutes a distance
that a horse-drawn engine could not go
in half an hour. The tire chief was par
ticularly impressed with the efficiency of
the motor. Are engine in suburban dis
tricts.
Care to Be Exercised.
While the officials present all expressed
themselves as much impressed by the
demonstration of the particular engine
In Washington today, they declared that
all types of motor fire apparatus will be
considered before any are bought.
During the demonstration this morning
the engine threw four streams most of
the time, and nozzles of several different
sizes were used. It was found that the
pump had a capacity of 6T?o gallons of
water per minute. The demonstrator of
the engine was Thomas L. Pfarr, jr.,
manager of the company which manu
factures the machine. The engine left
Washington this afternoon for Reading,
Pa., where it will give a demonstration
Monday.
Among thoBe who witnessed the test
this morning were Commissioner West,
Capt. Martvham, acting engineer com
missioner; Fire Chief Frank J. Wagner,
T. M. Robinson, superintendent of ma
chinery; William F. Gude, president of
the Chamber of Commerce; W. A. Mc
Farland, superintendent of the water de

INTEREST OF INVENTORS.
Association Formed to Secure "Re
medial Patent Legislation." i
At a meeting of the Inventors' Pro
tective Association last night at Flynn's
Hall, J>36 8th street northwest. William
P. Armstrong was elected president and
Joseph J. O'Brien secretary.
A constitution was adopted in which
the objects of the organization were
set forth?to promote the interests of
inventors, to effect economy in secur
ing patents, to bring about favorable
and remedial patent legislation, to
"labor for the correction of abuses in
current methods of obtaining, operating
and selling patents" and to secure co
operation among the members for mutual
protection.
It was decided to make a permanent
organization under the name of the In
ventors' League. Another plan of the
league is the collection and publication
of the history of inventive art and the
preservation of the literature of in
vention.
There are to be three classes of mem
bers in the league. Class 1 will em
brace those to whom a patent has act
ually been issued, class U consists of
inventors who have a patent pending
and class 3 consists of those who are
planning to get a patent, but who
haven't been successful yet. Class 1
will have a vote in the affairs of tiie
society. The other classes cannot vote,
but the second class may have a voice
at meetings of the organization.
PROTECTION AGAINST FIRE.
All Local Theaters Have Appliances
in Proper Condition.
All the appliances for tire protection in
the larger of the Washington theaters
are in proper condition, according to a re
port just submitted to the Commissioners
by Fire Chief Wagner.
"In connection with the issue of the.
annual licenses for the operation of thea
ters in this District," Fire Chief Wagner
reports, "1 have the honor to report that
I have just completed a thorough inspec
tion of the following playhouses: The
Belasco, Chase's, the New National, the
Lyceum, the Academy of Music, the Ma
jestic, the Gayety and the Columbia.
"These inspections included an exami
nation and test of the ventilators, per
forated pipes over the proscenium arch,
hose, standpipe systems, lire extinguish
ers, fire axes and ceiling hooks.
"In all the theaters mentioned above
the apparatus and appliances for fire
protection were found to be in proper
condition and to comply with law.
"So far as the tire department is con
cerned, it is recommended that licenses
be issued, and. further, that this paper be
forwarded to the assessor, District of Co
lumbia, for his information."
